Proposals and Comments

The purpose of this page is to allow all interested persons, groups or organizations an opportunity to present online comments and suggestions concerning additions, deletions or revisions to existing or new expected practices. The Committee on Performance-Based Standards will meet to review the proposed changes to the ACA expected practices at the Congress of Correction in August 2021, or earlier if needed. If a proposal is denied by the Committee, that proposal is eligible for submission again in two years.

Proposed revisions to the ACA expected practices can be submitted below. The portal will be open for submissions on Monday, December 7, 2020 and close on Friday, January 22, 2021. The revisions proposed during this period will be available for public comment from Monday, February 1, 2021 through Friday, February 26, 2021. For questions, please contact the Performance-Based Standards and Expected Practices Accreditation Department, at
